In response to this, Roskomnadzor announced a regular update of the list of blocked VPNs that allow access to resources limited in the Russian Federation.
According to Telegram channels, Cyberhost VPN, Mcafee VPN, Quark VPN, Ultrasurf VPNm, VPN Super Unlimited Proxy, Zenmate VPN, VPN Russia – Unblock Proxy, VPN HUB and others may fall under the restrictions.

At the same time, the chairman of the Radfed committee Andriy Klishas explained that this decision also does not affect the use of Russian social networks of the corporation due to the lack of changes in the legal framework.
